I work at a school district and we put 7 32 bit on our p4's. They run fine really. Probably about the same as XP but with all the benefits of 7

I have a similar machine with a 1.60ghz pentium 4, about a gig of ram and 120gb of storage space. A friend gave it to me for free.

I currently have Ubuntu dual booted with win xp running on it and its great, I use it for banking and web browsing mostly.

The only reason I don't have Win 7 on this is because I'm not entirly sure of the motherboard so I don't know if I would be able to find the right drivers for it in win 7. (if anyone thinks they can help me out please do pm me, I would love to get win 7 running on this machine)
However I would say if you can get the drivers for it then Win 7 would be the way to go, Windows 7 works great on my N450 netbook with 1gig of ram.

Win 7 Pro.

Why would you be impressed?

Id go with windows 7, or even better Lubuntu if you don't mind linux. XP is clunky.

That said, its worth going through some guides to disable unneeded services and such in windows 7 to optimize it. Google tweakhound and Black viper to get some good guides.
